My father’s funeral is to be held at Preston Crematorium, on Wednesday 11th July at 1:00pm followed by a memorial service at Kingdom Hall, Broughton Tower Way, PR2 9PH, at 2.00pmJust to let you know that I have just found out that my father, Hubert Walker, died yesterday, 1st July. He was 96. My father was a Jehovah’s Witness from 1950 onwards. My mother had cancer at the time and they were drawn into the Witnesses by the fear of Hell Fire and the Watchtower hope of the earthly resurrection. My mother died in 1950.
My father married again in the 1980’s, to a Jehovah’s Witness, but since I came out of the Witnesses I have not been allowed contact with them except for the funeral of my sister, also a Witness, in 2009.
So I am the last of the family.
I am hoping to get an invitation to the funeral.
I am invited and have been requested to write up some notes in celebration of his life for presentation at the memorial service. Two of my sons will be there. Both are now ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses and are married to non-Jehovah’s Witnesses.
I have taken next week off work and will be starting the 400 miles journey tomorrow.
I request that the usual culprits refrain from spoiling this thread with their usual star wars antics. They can continue on the link below if they cannot show respect fo the dead.
